Turn your students into scientists who use their knowledge and creativity to solve real-world problems. Each lesson features a step-by-step guide; a summary of recent research; and handouts that are classroom-ready.
Learn about the three levels of writing, from a Level 1 quickwrite to a formal, multi-part, Level 3 research paper. Each writing assignment—narrative, persuasive, and informative—includes a detailed rubric that makes grading easy.
Students collaborate to contain an outbreak of avian flu, lead a group of people trying to survive under harsh conditions, battle drought in a densely-populated city in the American southwest, research the behavior of animals in the local region, and calculate their own speed, velocity, and momentum.
Engaging and demanding, Project-Based Writing in Science helps students to understand and improve the world.
